About the Show

Post-apocalyptic US drama in which 100 juvenile prisoners are exiled from their dying 'Ark' in space and sent back to Earth in the hope that they can repopulate the planet

Series 1 Summary

The first series of the post-apocalyptic US drama, set 97 years after a nuclear Armageddon destroyed all civilisation on Earth.

The only survivors were the 400 inhabitants of 12 international space stations that were lucky enough to be in orbit at the time.

Since then, three generations have been born in space and the population has swelled to thousands on the 'Ark', the dozen stations now linked together and repurposed to keep the survivors alive.

Life on the Ark is hard. Population is tightly controlled, resources are severely rationed and all crimes, no matter how petty, are punishable by death - unless you're under 18.
